'Everyday X-Men' reveals Marvel's mutants in their off-hours

Being an X-Men is a busy job. Between the fighting, the schooling and the baseball games, there's not much time for anything else -- or is there?

Vreeland cartoonist Chad Sells has begun depicting Marvel's mutants during their off-time in a new series of illustrations dubbed "Everyday X-Men." The 16 images so far show various X-Men (and even a few enemies) in their leisure pursuits ... and interestingly enough, many of them are in their '90s-era duds, if they're wearing anything at all.

"Ever since I was a kid, I've been obsessed with comics -- reading them, writing them, drawing them. The X-Men have always been some of my favorites, especially the '90s Jim Lee era that I was first introduced to," Sells tells IGN. "So I wanted to try and draw some of those iconic and nostalgic characters, but without relying on just hyper-sexualizing the characters or putting them in exaggerated, contorted action poses."

Here's a look at some of the 16 "Everyday X-Men" illustrations Sells has created to date. Visit his website for more.
